MICROBIOME GENETICS is changed by the diet you eat and this happens because your gut bacteria evolve rapidly as the food they get from you changes. Bacterial genes are in simple loops of DNA and are not tightly wound on chromosomes like human DNA. So genes can be transferred from one bacteria to another and the community of bacteria changes throughout the day and night. The gut bacteria also produces substances that change human metabolism. Your body responds more slowly but your genes change in response to diet and lifestyle through epigenetics. Epigenetics is the result of modifications of your genes affecting which genes are active or inactive in your body as you transform your muscle and fat. Some of these changes can be inherited by your children and grandchildren. So diet and lifestyle affects the two million genes of your Microbiome and in turn affects your 23,000 genes by regulating which are active, and these changes can be inherited. Balanced Nutrition and Healthy Active Lifestyle that is Personalized will transform your body, your genes, and your Microbiome!! #drdavidheber #microbiome #genetics #diet #lifestyle #epigenetics to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
